capucine steals my heart (and yours) again

i think i've found the one person on the planet who loves parcels in the mail as much as i do.

prepare for cute overload and click here.

rainn says this is the saddest song in the world...

i agree.

procrastination stations here we come.

science redeems itself (after creating glowing puppies)

with a way to post messages on Twitter using electrical impulses generated by thought.

wowzers.

forget the night light...

now, thanks to science, you can get your own glow-in-the-dark dog.

this makes me really sad for some reason.


on the must-see list.

let there be light

i don't really remember using a nightlight as a child. but now that i've seen these, i kinda want one. or seven.
















oh and speaking of light. if you have a mac, you can try the latest SP challenge where you can paint with light.

monday mishmash

it's a pretty crazy world when you find yourself quoted on a stranger's myspace profile.

in other news:

1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANUSCE AND JAKE SIMKIN (aka messy panda).

2. i need to find yeast free, gluten free, YET still delicious, bread that doesn't cost a small fortune. please submit ideas.

3. i want to buy a grill. i have no grill purchasing expertise. i think i'm gonna delegate this job.

4. dev and i tried weeding the vegetable garden the other day. we lasted about 3 minutes and then saw a snake coiled up waiting to attack. i now fear the outdoors.

5. i'm having twitter anxiety. a bunch of people follow me because rainn follows me. and so i'm sure they expect me to be funny. and that's a lot of pressure.

6. in the near future i'd like to purchase plane tickets to (in no particular order):

norway
australia
new zealand
boston
hawaii
israel

7. i love this picture of devonius at dusk.

we made a pact...

...never to have superficial conversations with each other.

here's to many more talks about life's big questions over greasy burgers at dodgy tennessee eateries and sharing inspiration lying on a trampoline at dusk.

hallmark eat your heart out.

when a friend of mine found out i was leaving tpac she sent me the below e-card.
this priceless gem and other delicious e-cards worth actually sending can be found here.

small loveliness

this packing tape is rather lovely.

now that i'm working from home, i'm going to send more packages and parcels and tiny objects that i can fit stamps on.

this tape is the perfect motivator.

mandatory midday trampoline break

5 people who have influenced me. who have no idea.



1. Roald Dahl - at a young age his writing instilled in me an inexhaustible love for reading and deliciously flawed characters. I cried when I found out he had died.

2. Michelle Denson - my after-school drama teacher. Eccentric is an understatement - she didn't wear underwear (and I have no idea WHY it was appropriate that we were all aware of this fact) and terrified her students. But she taught me to take 'um' out of my vocabulary and to speak with conviction.

3. Julie Andrews - the hills are alive with the Sound of Music. Need I say more?

4. Henry - okay, so Henry is not so much a person, as a Jack Russel Terrier. But this rascal taught me more than most humans I've interacted with. He taught me to love being outside, even in the pouring rain and to greet everyone with joy and excitement.

5. Mrs. Ball - my piano teacher. Meany von Meanpants. She once slammed the piano lid on my fingers because I hadn't practiced my scales. A great example of how NOT to cultivate a love for music in your students.

creepy is an understatement.
